When the headlights start to sag, and the exhaust develops a fat golf ball like appearance...and wont run right anymore without yelling at it...Then its time to trade her in.

yeah I remember that guy with over 100,000 but that was in kilometers though.. so he actually had around 70,000 or so on her. damn I forget his name but, he was from the UK I have chatted with him in these forums before oops just remembered his name ...... the 1,000 er gixxer or something.

Isn't there a guy out there that has put more than 200,000 miles on his bike? Granted that it's been highway miles and it's an F4i, I sware I saw a video of it. That just means gsxr's should be able to go further... . But seriously as long as you maintain your bike, miles aren't a big deal. My 06 gsxr is about to roll 24k and I started with it last year at 15k ... maybe I've added a little too much ...

"High" mileage is a function of time and maintenance. It only seems high if the time is shorter than you personally would have taken to ride that much.

If you maintain it properly it will keep running and high mileage will actually be a badge of honor.

see thats the thing I always keep my baby maintained. I change the oil with MOTUL every 2,000 miles and the filter I take pride and care of her. I guess I will never sell it/ trade it for another. if anything Ill turn her in to a track bike. im just curious of how many miles people have on there babys

If they are street miles, no matter how hard the rider rides, it won't even begin to matter until 50k or more. If the bike has been heavily stunted, crashed multiple times, fixed up halfway, 5k might be a lot.

I put about 24k race track miles, and another 8k on the street on my Honda 929, and it still runs very well. After all that, it has lost a little of it's power, but you'd only notice on the track. I still have the bike, since it's not worth what I'd get by selling it. I'd be very happy to have it, and I still enjoy riding it from time to time, even though I have newer bikes as well.

see thats the thing bro, its a super sports bike... what do people consider high mileage? any machine that you take care of will last for ever I have a 91 cr-x si with a 150,000 miles on it. howvever its always been maintained, but I did replace the motor in in with a h22-a. so the car is old but, the motor isnt. what about the bikes? what do people consider a lot of miles

I know that was a joke, because a Honda is #1 in reliability, but I think you knew that already.

Got 150 000 Km on my '99 Blade, she gets used as a commuter on weekdays and spanked on weekends at the track

and 12 000 Km on 2011 GSX-R (Bought in July 2011)

You know how it is when you lean back too far in your chair and almost fall backwards, but save yourself at the last second? I feel like that all day.

Yeah, but the guy on that F4i honda has rebuilted his motor twice so far tho...

A engine wont last forever.. ur gonna have to rebuilt it sometimes. cause some parts intend to go.

I had 27,000 miles on my 05 motor til the rod gave up thru the block.

23,000 miles on this 04 motor. I already put 1,000 miles on it since past month. lol

What they said. Nothing lasts forever, but as long as anything is maintained, it will provide plenty of years of enjoyment.

For me not to buy a used bike, I keep looking when bikes are over the 25,000 mile mark. That doesn't mean I'm looking to sell mine at that stage tho.

Let's look at it this way. If 10 or 15K was the engineered product life span they would only last 2 to 5 years...almost a disposable product.
With a MSRP of 10 to 15K it is costing $5K just to own it for a year or $1 per km. No one would buy it or finance it.
If they were that short lived the original owners would use them up and used ones would be hard to find.

Where did you get that info....He is a member on the Honda forum that I also have been a member since 08, and I remember when he posted up about his bike, here is the thread, yes I just had to find it, he says he was still on the original clutch too, nothing about rebuilds.

I've got 70k miles on my 2001 gsxr 750.

The funny thing(or not) is that I bought the bike salvaged with 1k miles and since I figured I would lay down my first bike, i didnt really take the best care of it but yet she still runs like a champ. As for maintenance never changed the clutch, only a sporadic oil change(every 5-7k) and a thermostat at 40k.

I did want to upgrade to a new bike and the guy at the dealership asked if I wanted to trade my bike in but I told him I didn't think I would get much for a bike with 70k miles, and he said " you mean 7k right"...I had to correct him...lol
